Daily Prayer and Reading 4/10

Easter Monday

Morning Offering:

O Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I offer you my prayers, works, joys, and sufferings of this day for all the intentions of your Sacred Heart, in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass throughout the world, for the salvation of souls, the reparation of sins, the reunion of all Christians, and in particular for the intentions of the Holy Father this month for the spread of peace and non-violence, by decreasing the use of weapons by states and citizens. Amen

Daily Prayer:

Triumphant Savior, in Your providence, You chose Mary Magdalene as the first disciple to proclaim Your Resurrection. Grant that the Church may never forget the unique role of women in proclaiming Your Gospel throughout the ages. Send Your Spirit, enlighten all your followers, especially those in leadership roles, so that all diverse gifts and talents of the women today may be fully utilized for Your greater honor and glory. Amen

This week the Oblates in Romania are praying for you.

The mission is composed of a single community of four Oblates. They live in Maracineni, a small town of about 5,000 people in the southern portion of the country. Community life is marked by a serene, fraternal life, with regular moments of prayer and sharing in every aspect of domestic life. Pastoral activity is shared in a spirit of great openness. Among the activities, significant is the pastoral animation and sacramental ministry in the parish of Pitesti, especially through the celebration of the Eucharist on Sundays and other days.
